It’s a “social media” company, but to be honest – the words “social media” kind of make me want to gag at this point. And I do MUCH more than that for my clients, and my own budding projects.
As you can imagine, it’s hard enough going back to my small Cajun hometown (population <1,000) and explaining that I actually DO have a job – and that I work in “social media” or “internet marketing strategy,” ::cue eye glaze:: but it’s even worse when I’m here in New Orleans, an entrepreneurial tech hub, and someone at a party asks “So what do you do?”
Sometimes I find myself getting bored with the explanation. Because THERE’S JUST NO ELEVATOR PITCH FOR ALL THE AWESOME SHIT I DO, OKAY!?
So if I had to say “this is what I do,” it would be in a bulleted list (like the one below), not a self-important tagline like “I revolutionize small business models with innovative online marketing techniques.” Ew.
